NBA 2K2THE GOOD: great game play; franchise mode; 2 on 2; custom teams; CPU initiated trades; FUN!!!!
THE BAD: repetitive commentary; can't use custom teams in franchise mode (only season); can't see custom logos until team is made
SUMMARY: The GOOD: Fun, addictive, fast paced with plenty of modes of play. From 2 on 2 street ball to tournament modes with 4,8, or 16 teams. From Franchise to season modes with eith standard or fantasy draft options. With CPU initiated trades even between themselves their is plenty of depth to this game. In franchise mode you have all league office options such as scouting pleyers, watching salary cap when signing players, even has a preseason to get used to new players and an offensive and defensive playbook for plays to be called on the fly.
The Bad :-( Can't use created teams or players in franchise mode. All created players are from The Academy of Art(still trying to find a way to change that). You can't see any of the 10 creatable team logo's until you completely make and fill the team up with players. Lastly, the commentary tends to repeat itself a little to much.
Overall :-) The best basketball game on PS2 so far (IMHO). Gameplay flows more smoothly than on NBA Live 2001 and more modes of play than NBA Street. Highly recommended despite its few shortcomings.
